    I am having trouble installing TeamPulse on a Windows 2008 R2 server. The error comes when trying to create a new database.

    Error - 2147217900: failed to create SQL database: TeamPulse, error detail: CREATE DATABASE permission denied in database 'master'..

    I just installed SQL Server 2008 Express Edition with the same account, so I should have full permissions.

    Any ideas?

    I deleted SQL Server 2008 and re-installed it. Now the error reads:

    Error - 2147467259: failed to create SQL database: TeamPulse, error detail: unknown error.

    This is the only SQL Server instance on this machine. I also tried creating the database inside of Management Studio, but I still receive the same error.

    Hello Kevin,

    When you installed SQL Express 2008 did you specify a name for the server instance? The TeamPulse beta can only use (local)\sqlexpress

    If that isn't the issue, then double check to make sure your user as full access rights to the SQL Server. Hopefully one of those two should resolve your issue. If not we'll have to take a closer look.

    I ended up having to delete all instances of SQL Server, uninstall it, and re-install it using 'sqlexpress' as the instance name. I ran in to a ton of errors after that, but eventually solved them all - thanks!

    Hello Kevin,

    Glad you got it working Kevin! You'll be happy to know that we have revamped a lot of the installer to try and get a smoother user experience out of it. TeamPulse releases in just over a week, so I hope you'll check it out then!
